Saturday's Critters # 184

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

If you love critters like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

I am sharing some grand-doggie photos and some images of the neighborhood Great Blue Herons and their chicks. We have a good view of the nest from the fire road that we take our walks on. My son's dogs visited for the first week of June, while he went to visit my sister at Ocean Isles Beach, NC.



 I took various shots of the herons on the nest as we walked by on the trail. This is the only nest that we can see in an open area. The other nest are hidden with the trees and all the leaves.


Twins, two chicks on the nest with the proud parent standing by.


Nibbles looks like she is part shepherd/lab  and Chewie has short legs like a dachshund mix.


Resting after a walk on the fire road.



Every day the grand dogs went on a walk. Once in the morning and again in the evening.  They are spoiled now.

  10. Hello Eileen,:) What a treat to see the chicks at close range, you are so lucky. I love the photo of the twins and the proud parent. Cute shots of your grand-doggies. No favourites I see, each has a ball and a bone,...isn't it great to be able to spoil them!!

  12. Good Morning Eileen. Don't you just love those scruffy heron chicks? And to think they will grow into that beautiful Great Blue. Now Chewy and Nibbles, we don't need to ask waht they like doing apart from their morning walk. Have fun.

    Thanks for letting me join in today.
